Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Loveland, COOctober 19, 2018
Some people were hard workers others did nothing. A good job for a young student looking for some extra cash but nothing long term because pay is not good. Good place for people into sports and hats.
Pros
relaxed at times, made my own schedule
Cons
Pay

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLOctober 14, 2018
Great workplace. Great manager and coworker.
I learned to sell more without doubt.
They create like a family ambient that you'll love to work there.
The hardest part of the job is when you don't hit the goals, they cut hours and days.

Overall terrible just don’t do it
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Woodbury, NYOctober 7, 2018
Working here is really not worth it unless you really just LOVE sports or hats they pay HORRIBLY! No benefit for assistant managers but all the same work & responsibilities. They never give raises. There’s always some type of issue with the checks where ppl don’t get paid AT ALL for WEEKS at a time & are just expected to be ok with that & keep working for free until they figure out what THEY did! Then YOU’RE expected to call payroll & manually give them your schedule that’s supposed to be in their system because that’s the whole point of clocking in right.
Pros
Discounts
Cons
Pay, No Benefits, Uniform, Promotion without raises

Not too bad
Distribution Associate (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, IN 46278October 7, 2018
If you're young person with no bills or major responsibilities lives is a good starter company to work for. Safety is a major theme at this company but other than that the job is not difficult. If you show up on time and do your job you should be able to stay as long as you want.
Pros
Good environment
Cons
No room for advancement

easy job if you know sports
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVSeptember 22, 2018
Clock in and see what needs to be done by the end of the shift. Clean and organize and pick up after customers. Easy job but poor management. They don't care about their employees. Won't give raises and when asked they always have an excuse. Too many managers too often including DM and RM
Pros
get paid to watch sports
Cons
never got a raise after 3 1/2 years no matter what i did

Good for High School Student
Third key holder (Former Employee) –  Bethesda, MDSeptember 9, 2018
High school student. Learned how to multi task. Just did not like that we worked alone in the store and in some malls it is scary.However this was back in 2000. The company is very big on up-selling; getting customer to buy 2 hats verses one.
Pros
Fun
Cons
Working alone
